During the 1990’s there was an explosion of newer hotels in the Macon area–mainly due to the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. However, in the last few years, a similar flurry of hotels have occurred that gives visitors an opportunity to have more of a choice.
The following is the five newest hotels in Macon:
1.Microtel Inn & Suites Macon is one of the city’s newest hotels and it is in a great location which is convenient for locals and visitors. The staff is friendly and the rooms were well kept, clean and it was quiet. In regard to amenities, there is access to high-speed Internet access so if one is a business customer or wanted to check your e-mail, one can easily access it.
2. Hampton Inn & Suites-North is located off Interstate 75 in Macon at Exit 169. Even though it may be a little difficult to find the hotel, it is still a nice place to stay. If you had seen the commercials on television about their commitment to clean rooms, it is true when one see the rooms in person. I would recommend this hotel for amentities as well. The breakfast is another nice feature for this very respectable hotel.
3. Holiday Inn Express-West is located off the bypass Interstate 475 in Macon and similar to the Hampton Inn-North. The location is a little tough, but once you get there, the guest shouldn’t be disappointed. It is one of Macon’s newest hotels and is geared toward the business traveler. A nice feature to this hotel is that a fitness center is on the property. It appears more and more hotels are providing this particular amenity for the more health conscious guest.
4. Marriot Convention Hotel: Local city government had always had plans to have a hotel located neat the Macon Centrpelex and those plans turned into reality with the opening of the Marriot hotel in downtown Macon. This hotel is centrally located near a lot of Macon’s famous landmarks including local museums.
5. Homewood Suites Macon-North is part of the Hilton chain of hotels and the exterior of the hotel looks great and offer competitive prices for the type of rooms that they have along with their amenities.
